NFL QB Woes
By Wild on Sports Analyst Jason Gillson


Buffalo Bills

Kevin Kolb
EJ Mannuel
Jeff Tuel
Matt Leinart
Thad Lewis

No Team has been hit harder by the injury bug at the QB position than the Buffalo Bills. First, off-season Free-Agent signing Kevin Kolb suffered what is being called a "career threatening" concussion during a preseason game. Later, 2013 1st round pick EJ Manuel suffered a knee injury that will keep him out for the remainder of the pre-season and at least week 1 of the regular season.  They are now left with undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel who was just 4-22 in his time as a starter at Washington State. The Bills have also brought in Matt Leinart and Thad Lewis as emergency precautions. Certainly not the situation 1st year coach Doug Marrone was hoping for to start his tenure.


New York Jets

Mark Sanchez
Geno Smith
Greg McElroy

Very similar situation to the Bills. The Jets too have a rookie and a veteran that are hobbled at the moment. Rookie Geno Smith has been battling an ankle injury which has only magnified his typical rookie mistakes. Smith turned the ball over three times in their last preseason game against the NY Giants leading to being pulled in favor of the afore mentioned veteran. Upon coming into the game Mark Sanchez was hit early and often, suffering a shoulder injury serious enough to have Jets officials questioning whether he will be available week 1. Should both be unable to go the attention would turn to third year man Greg McElroy who proved he could be a serviceable back-up in relief of Sanchez last season. Either way, Rex Ryan once again has a mess on his hands


Oakland Raiders

Matt Flynn
Terrelle Pryor

Matt Flynn came into the season as the expected starter. For the second year in a row he may be unseated for the position going into week one, this time by no fault of his own. An elbow injury suffered in the Raiders last pre-season game has opened the door for rookie Terrelle Pryor to claim the starting job.
